DUI CASES IN IRVINE

Driving while impaired by alcohol and / or drugs is a serious matter in California. Even on a first conviction, you will face a driver's license suspension, hefty fines, potential jail time, an alcohol or drug treatment program, probation, and an increase in auto insurance premiums. You may also be required to install and maintain at your own expense an ignition interlock device. A conviction of this nature will remain on your driving record for 10 years. Subsequent offenses will result in harsher penalties.

California DUI laws include not only alcohol and street drugs but prescription medicines and even over-the-counter medicines. Any chemical substance ingested which can impair your judgment, reaction time, and motor skills can lead to an arrest. If your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) measures at .08 percent or above on a chemical test, then that could constitute evidence for a conviction. For drivers younger than 21, it is illegal to operate a motor vehicle with a BAC of .01 percent or higher. Commercial drivers can be convicted if they found to be driving with a BAC of .04 percent or more.
